Senior Pastor Drew Clinebell
Drew is the founding and Senior Pastor of Westbridge Community Church, located in Phillipsburg NJ. His passion for ministry began at age 23 when he “finally gave God complete control of his life.” Since that day in 1983, Drew has attended Zarephath Bible Institute where he received his Associates Degree in Biblical Studies and then completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Bible and Leadership at Philadelphia Biblical University.
“My ministry passion has been to create a church experience that is engaging, encouraging, and exciting.” Through the use of the arts and relevant, life-relating messages, Drew has helped lead people one step closer to God each week in Westbridge’s Saturday night worship service. His unique calling is to be a volunteer Pastor and continue on the wave that God has placed him. Drew recently retired as a Captain from the Linden Fire Department.
Drew lives in White Township in the house he built himself. “All firemen know how to do something else, and for me it was carpentry.” He has been married to Kellie since 1990, and they have invested in raising their three children, Katie, Cody, and Caleb. When not fighting fires, Drew enjoys classic car and motorcycle restoration (“they’re cheap and they’re cool”), playing guitar, and watching football.
